SHOCK AND DISBELIEF: INDIAN MICHEAL JACKSON FANS MOURN THE LEGEND

Thousands of Indian Micheal Jackson fans in India watching late night television watched in utter disbelief as the news of the cardiac arrest of the legend and the subsequent announcement of his death filtered in.

Since most Indian television channels show only repeats of earlier recorded news bulletins, the internet, news websites, blogs and foreign channels were much in demand. Social Networking sites like Facebook, Orkut and Twitter became sources for the latest bits or tweets of info.

SMS networks in India also registered a significant rise in SMS traffic since 4.30 am on Friday morning as news of the King of Pop filtered in. For journalists like Flynn Remedios who grew up on Man in the Mirror, Black or White, Beat it and several other MJ tracks the news came as a big shock.

Long Live MJ. May your soul rest in peace….
